The €2.90 multi-tasking pencil everyone should have in their makeup bag

Sometimes the stars align and a product gets launched, that is not only highly useful and multi-functional but is also an absolute bargain.

Highlighter, contour, eyeliner, brow pencil, eyeshadow... and all for €2.90? Sounds almost too good to be true, right? Well, not so as Essence have managed to do it with their new Sculpting Eye Pencils.

In their latest collection, you'll find three versions of the double ended pencils which feature a pale shade on one end and a darker shade on the other. Above you can see the different colour combos available. From top to bottom: White to Black, Peach for Chocolate and Grape a Rose.


While we love the look of the black and purple ones, it's more so the brown pencil that has really caught our eye.  The Peach for Chocolate pencil offers up a pale peachy/cream neutral and a neutral brown. And as we all know, when it comes to multi-tasking products, neutral shades are always the most useful.

With this pencil, the paler shade can be used for anything from defining your lip line or arch of the brow to highlighting the inner water line to brighten eyes or highlighting cheekbones (if you scribble & blend it over). Similarly, the brown pencil can be used as eyeliner, for contouring and even for filling in sparse areas of the brows. Not too shabby for less than the price of a coffee, eh?
